It’s BASEL time! The bells are ringing for art lovers around the world. This much anticipated week, the first week of December, is not only bringing in art works from international galleries, but it is too bringing in international Street Artists to cover the walls of Wynwood, The Arts District in Miami.

An impressive turnout has hit the streets. From Australia (Rone) to Brazil (Eduardo Kobra and Alex Senna) to Nicaragua (Luis Valle) and South Africa (Chinese-born artist DALeast – whose hometown is Cape Town), and even some US artists (like the phenomenal and ingenious Kenny Scharf – above), amongst others, have come to show their A-GAME. The streets have become REFRESHED and AWAKENED with NEW murals. AND WE JUST LOVE IT!!

See for yourself!

Also, DON’T FORGET to check out the REEFA memorial mural, in which a collaboration of Street Artist’s (including PEZ and Miami’s own AHOL SNIFF’s GLUE [@aholsniffsglue]) took part in, to commemorate the tragic life lost of Israel Hernandez, aka REEFA. #RIPREEFA.
